About the song
The murder and death of 7 month old Tyler Shanabarger by his father on Fathers Day 1999. The funeral was normal and no one knew until that night when the father confessed to his wife Amy that Tyler was murdered in a bizarre revenge plot. The story was so bizarre and the motive and premeditation years in advance, that it captured worldwide attention. News, radio and TV from everywhere decended and as a result, an obscure little song, and the memory of a little baby were pushed into the mainstream of society. The poem was written by Grandfather Robert Parsons as a result of his mourning, and attempt to not have Tyler forgotten. The poem was read as part of the funeral service. After it was revealed that the baby had been murdered, Darcy Troville, close friend of Bob's and officiant at the service collaborated with Bob and placed the poem to music after several revisions. It was done to not only remember Tyler, but also to help raise money and awareness of child abuse.
Lyrics
Grandpas and Little Boys,

Intro:
Hi Grandpa I love you (Little boys voice)

I wish for the things that Grandaps and little boys do
Like hours of fishing and talking under skies of deep blue
I wish for the things, I wish for the things I wish for the things, that Grandpas and Little Boys do

Verse 1:

Like pushing on yourswing way up high
You think that your toes will touch the sky
Like sharing your very first ice cema cone
And hoping its you with each tring of the phone

Bridge:
I miss you so much that my tears fill the air
but I'm happy to know that you're in God's tender care

Refrain:
I wish for the things that Grandpas and Little Boys Do!

Verse: 2

Like having you show me how fast you can run
and playing with you under warm summer sun
I guess that my wishes were not part of God's plan
but I'll see you again, my little man

Bridge:

I miss you so much that my tears fill the air, but I'm happy to know you're in God's tender care.

Refrain:

I wish for the things that Grandpas and Little Boys Do !

Outro: (spoken)
We'll be together again buddy, just me and you, because love lasts forever and I love you. Then we'll do all those things, yes, we'll do all those things, that Grandpas and Little Boys Do !
